A miffed Bala took on Bharathiraja at the recent press meet regarding the issue of Kuttra Parambarai. “I’m making a fictional account of what happened during that period.”
“What Bharathiraja is working on is a factual story based on the Kuttra Parambarai community. My film is totally different. I don’t know why I’m being unneccessarily dragged into the issue,” said Bala.
“Noone can claim ownership for Jallianwala Bagh Massacre. It’s history. Kamal Haasan cannot claim ownership for Marudhanayagam. It’s hisory. Everyone can make a film based on that,” said Bala.
